Online Ticket Sales are now closed. You can still purhase tickets at the door.  

Do you love world-class food and libations?  Join us for the Epicuriad featuring food and beer/wine pairings!  We invite  local chefs to come together in a friendly competition, and vie for food-pairing glory.  Each chef will be given a specific beer and wine that has been graciously donated to us by participating breweries and vineyards, and they will create a dish that they feel pairs well with both.  Based on attendee votes, one chef will be crowned the winner, and will receive the coveted Epicuriad chef's jacket.  Funds raised benefit brain tumor research and programs at Ivy Brain Tumor Center at Barrow Neurological Institute and the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative
